    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance

  2. Do intakes help with the wheezy 2.0L?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    Hi there. I am interested in getting a better sounding engine. The stock 2.0L sounds too wheezy. Do intakes help with it? If not, I'll just go with getting a Vibrant resonator in place of the stock one.
  3. WTB Air Intakes for 2014+ 2.0l Skyactiv

    Mazda 3 Parts - Buy / Sell
    Looking for either short ram or cold air intakes for the 3rd gen 2.0l. I’m in San Diego if you’re local.
  4. Intakes - Which one?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    Hey fellas, I am looking to add a after market intake to my ride... I was looking at the Corksport SRI or the K & N. Is there really a difference in one vs the other (besides price)? I know one is a short ram and the other is a cold air but I am looking at the "which will do better for me". I...
  5. Best short ram intakes besides CorkSport?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    What other short ram intakes are available for 2015 mazda 3 2.0L's? I've had my eye on the corksport one, but being in Australia, means I need to pay a ridiculous shipping cost and currency conversion; so what other options are there? And has anyone from Australia changed their air filters to...
  6. Intakes

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    Sorry if there's a thread on this, I've done a lot of searches but can't find my be all end all answer. There are several intakes for the 14+ MZ3, but what it seems like everyone is concluding is these SRIs should come with some kind of airbox to keep out hot air and preform well under all...
  7. Smog Check for Simota Intakes

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 Engine and Performance
    Just a quick question. I just want to know if anyone has ever done a smog check without putting their stock intakes back. I have a CBII Simota SRI and I just want to know if anyone has gotten away with it through inspection. I know Simota is not C.A.R.B legal oh and I live in Los Angeles...
  8. Newbiee Here Askign about Intakes

    New Member Introduction & Forum News/Guide
    Hi I'm new to this I just got my 2013 MSP3 a week ago. Since then I spent hour reading and reading about MSP3 Intakes but I'm still not sure which one is better of give me more for the price etc. I know that so many people ask the same but I couldn't read any concrete answer so I'm trying to get...
  9. Ram Air Intakes - Do They Provide Any Benefits?

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 Engine and Performance
    This thread refers to ram air induction provided by the forward motion of the vehicle, not "ram tuning" of intake and exhaust systems designed to maximize volumetric efficiency in a specific rpm band (or smooth out variations in air flow which is a good reason to keep your Helmholtz resonator)...
  10. Question about Intakes

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 Engine and Performance
    Hey everyone, I'm pretty new when it comes to what cars can do, and I've been looking at replacing my intake. I've been doing some research on the two different types of intakes and general consensus is that cold air intakes are better. Does anyone have an opinion on which one would be better...

  12. Intakes for the 2.0L Engine

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 Engine and Performance
    So I'm looking to replace my stock air intake on my 2011 and I did some research and found out that AEM, K&N, and Injen don't make any intakes for the 2.0L Mazda 3s. I know about Simota and CS, but I was wondering if anyone knew any other good alternatives from those brands? I'm really leaning...
  13. Headers and intakes

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 Engine and Performance
    I know this topic is on here often, but looking at intakes and headers is a bitch because all I find really is stuff for the 2.5 or 2.3 or 1st gen 3's. Can you put anything for the 2.3 or .5 on a 2.0 w/o any problems besides the CEL? Also are there any other makes that will interchange with Mazda?
  14. CARB Legal Intakes for 2010+ 2.5L

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 Engine and Performance
    I have been searching around recently for an air intake for my 2011 Hatchback (2.5L engine), but haven't been very successful finding an intake that I can legally use here in California (until about 5 minutes ago). As a result, I figured I would start a thread for reference and ask anyone if...
  15. 2.3 intakes fit 2.0?

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 Engine and Performance
    Is that correct? I want a K&N because people in my family have always used them with no problems. I found a typhoon for the 2.3 and the 2010+ 2.5... I know corksport has the same exact intake for the 2.0 and 2.5... so will either one work on my 2.0?
  16. 2.0 Intake(s)????

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 Engine and Performance
    I have a 2011 touring i 2.0 just wondering if anyone knows other than cs and simota are the only companies that have a sri for the 2.0 I have searched almost to the end of the internet. Also if anyone has this on an 11 can you give me some insight on how it performs, sounds, and mpgs cel. thanks...
  17. CARB legal intakes

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 Engine and Performance
    Does anyone know which intakes are CARB legal for the MZ3? I know corksport recently got the intake for the speed certified, but last time I talked to them they said it would probably be around a year, but they werent sure so it could be longer, until they will have the intakes for the non-speed...
